KABUL, Afghanistan (CNN) - Vice President Dick Cheney arrived Thursday in the Afghan capital, praising ties with the Afghan government and the efforts of the NATO-led coalition in confronting the Taliban.

Cheney met with Afghan President Hamid Karzai, and afterward they delivered remarks and answered questions before reporters.

The visit to Afghanistan - which a U.S. Embassy source says will be "very brief" - is Cheney's latest stop in his trip overseas, which began Sunday. He visited Iraq earlier this week.
